Orcs and monsters and Elves Oh my!
Summer War is designed so you'll have fun playing it as a stand-alone event, or building a character and being a part of the continuing story. Perfect for first time adventurers and seasoned veterans alike.
Live Action Role Playing (or LARPing) is an unscripted immersive experience where you live the adventure. Your choices on and off the field of play will help shape the story, as friendships will be forged and alliances will rise and fall. With the structure of an easy to learn open ended rules set, called the C.O.M.B.a.T. System, in just a few minutes you'll be in play and immersed in this unparalleled experiential event. As a participant, you will take on the persona of an inhabitant of the world of Osterra, a character you create. You’ll wear period costumes, engage in quests, mock fights with realistic looking safe foam LARP weapons. Battles will be won, quests completed, puzzles solved, flagons of mead emptied and indelible memories made. So, come join us for Summer War, try your hand at challenges both martial and mental, make new friends…and slay them!
Our event organizers have three decades of experience LARPing, organizing events and fantasy film production. They will combine this experience with the structure of the fantasy world of Osterra and a supporting staff of veteran LARPers to bring you a one-of-a-kind immersive experience. This event will come to life with replica weapons and armor, period food and drink and activities that are accessible by those new to LARP, but complex enough to challenge even a grizzled LARP veteran. This event is open to everyone ages 16+, veterans and newcomers alike, and we have non-combat options if you would prefer to experience the adventure without a sword in your hand.
The day event will begin at 10:00 am with registration, rules & orientation, and then a chance to hone your combat skills before the event gets underway around noon. There will be a series of quests, challenges and role play to engage in that tie in to the complex fabric of the world of Osterra, as well as food and drink in our fantasy medieval tavern and local vendors selling all manner of wares. We will feast at the tavern, tales of the day’s glory around the bonfire, make and enjoy live music, drink wine, mead and cider, and camping for those staying overnight. Plot twists, games of skill and chance, character development and action will continue throughout the evening.
